Vice President Joseph Boikai says he is 95 percent sure of winning the primary of the governing Unity Party scheduled for July 7. The UP primary will be held in Gbanrga, Bong County to elect a new code of officers who will steer the affairs of the party for the next six years.
In a brief interview with NewDawn Bong County Correspondent, Vice President Boikai said no one can stop him from winning the primary. He is being challenged by economist and diplomat Dr. Toga Gaywea McIntosh for the UP standard bearer post.
VP Boakai expressed the optimism when the Unity Party Bong County branch hosted a reconciliatory retreat for its members in the county to trash out their differences and adequately prepare for the pending convention.
Ambassador Boakai who witnessed the opening ceremony of the retreat, said it is very essential for partisans to come together, stressing that if the party is not organized, it will also cause problems for the country.
He called on partisans in the county to unite as they prepare to host fellow partisans coming from across the country for the convention. Representative Prince Karmue of Bong County has been chosen by the party’s National Executive Committee to chair the upcoming convention.
